Two ways that I can think of:
- find or build a package designed for woody (check http://www.backports.org/
- set up sources.list with stable, testing and unstable sources. Set up apt
to prefer the stable distribution but selectively install what you want from
testing or unstable (apt-get -t testing install mysql-server)
I prefer the first solution if it's available (and it is for mysql-server).
